Economic and Project Analysis

In March 2017, the Economic and Project Analysis Division (EPAD) was formed by the combination of the previous Economic Research and Analysis, Fiscal Policy and Project Analysis divisions of the Department of Finance. EPAD is responsible for economic analysis and forecasting, economic impact analysis, and demographic analysis and population projections. The division is responsible for forecasting and analyzing revenues and providing a wide range of fiscal and economic inputs into the overall Budget preparation. It also provides assessment of projects, programs, government services, and other economic development initiatives from a business’s or proponent’s point of view utilizing discounted cashflow, risk analysis, and sensitivity analysis. EPAD is also responsible for the publication of the budget document, The Economy and the midyear review report, The Economic Review.
